I did not install on subdirectory. I want to make index.php to forum.php. Having troubles.

Hi xenforo,

I didn't install my xenforo software in a subdirectory.

I want to have a Welcome page in the main domain name. I'd like to change the current file name index.php to forum.php so I can replace the index.php with the welcome page that I've custom created. However, whenever I go to domain.com/forum.php, it keeps redirecting to the domain.com/index.php page. I've tried going to the admin panel and changing the forum url but to no avail. Please help.

There's very little work involved moving the forum to a sub-directory.
Just move the files and update the URL in the ACP and that's it.
